I'm having trouble finding CAD packages for Linux that are usable.
Most of them have user interfaces that range from bizarre to
attrocious and some go downhill from there...
I've used Chief Architect for Windows, and nothing I've seen or used
on Linux comes even close to CA's level of usability and intuition.
I have a couple of applications:
-architectural: house plan, garage, workshop, ...
Need: plan view, elevations, 3D perspective views, roof (??),
export to other formats (Chief Architect, ...). Export to 3D format
(VRML, POV, ...) for better renderings. Multiple layers, ...
-3D part designs:
CSG primitives, extrusions, holes,
Export to other formats (other CAD packages, POV, VRML, ...)
Export for CNC milling
I'm fine with using two different CAD packages to solve these
problems, but I'd love to do it in Linux instead of Windows.
